Mayor of Dacorum Bert Chapman wouldn’t be able to keep up with Tour de France champ Bradley Wiggins – but he’s still been presented with a coveted Great Britain cycling jersey.

British Cycling made the presentation to thank Dacorum Borough Council for backing the Sky Ride Local scheme.

The scheme, run by Sky and British Cycling, organises free community bike rides for all ages and abilities.

Bert said: “Bringing people together to cycle round our beautiful country lanes builds upon community spirit and understanding.

“It was an honour to receive the jersey. We want to encourage all Dacorum residents to take up the healthy sport.”

The jersey now hangs in the Civic Centre reception area.
